Alexa Chung is said to be dating Rob Ackroyd after the pair hit it off in Los Angeles.
Alexa Chung is reportedly dating Rob Ackroyd.
The 30-year-old fashionista has been in Los Angeles for the past month where she met Florence and the Machine's guitarist and the pair hit it off instantly.
Sources say: ''Rob and Remi have been working in the studio and she thought they'd make a great pairing. He's totally Alexa's type.
''Remi arranged for them to go out to dinner at Soho House and there was a real spark. They've been inseparable ever since and seem smitten. Now Rob's planning to fly to New York where Alexa lives for Valentine's Day.''
Alexa - who split from Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner in 2011 reportedly due to issues with maintaining a long term relationship - is currently living in New York and she ''loves'' Rob's humour.
Another source added: ''I think Alexa has found it hard to date in New York and Rob will have been a breath of fresh air. She loves his dry humour.''
There are concerns about how she'll cope with their distance but the pair seem keen to try and make it work.
A source UK's Grazia magazine: ''I think the only thing worrying Alexa will have been the distance. But she really likes Rob and he seems very keen to visit her, so she is eager to see how it pans out.''
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
